Florida Coronavirus Cases Up 45% Overnight, No School, Free Meals Available


Crazy how the numbers have drastically changed in Florida from St. Patty's Day to Hump Day.

The data is in and positive cases of the Coronavirus COVID-19 have risen by 45%, making the Florida total 314. The virus is currently in 31 Florida counties with Broward and Miami-Dade leading with 80 and 76, respectively. These number changes are huge considering just yesterday Broward was at 55 and Dade at 43. Sadly, one new death has been reported in Florida as well, making the total 7 now.

Major department stores such as Macy's, Nordstrom, and Saks Fifth Avenue have decided to close and operate only online. You can definitely feel the effects locally as Sawgrass Mills announces it's no longer open to shoppers, for now.
